My skin is very important to me and since I always have to be looking my best, meaning full make up on and all that props, I spend A LOT on maintaining my skin. Although I know my skin isn't at its tip top perfection, it is getting there. All thanks to Dr Ko Skin Specialist!
I was very happy when I was offered a consultation by one of their doctors and took some time out of my busy day to visit the Klinik Dr.Ko Damansara at 10 Boulevard. Which is near Damansara Uptown in Petaling Jaya.
The founder of Dr.Ko Skin Specialist – Dr Ko Chung Beng, spent 17 years in UK and obtained his specialist qualifications prior to his return to Malaysia in 1994. He headed the Dermatology Department of Seremban Hospital until 1997, then founded the KO Skin Specialist which has since been providing a comprehensive range of in-depth services from dermatology to cosmetic surgery.
When he first started out on his own in 1997, KO Skin Specialist was just a little clinic in Klang, located on the first floor of a shop lot. However the effectiveness of his prescriptions soon spread and today, that little clinic is now the headquarters for the 26 clinics of KO Skin Specialist centres across Malaysia. KO Skin Specialist now has their very own formulation of skincare products which are formulated by their team of professionals to combat signs of aging, acne and other skin problems. The centres also offer the most complete range of laser therapy equipment in Asia. No longer just a Malaysian brand, KO Skin Specialist has a branch in Xiamen, China, and will be opening more branches in the future! How’s that for a Malaysian success story?
Dr.Ko Skin Specialist has four (4) skincare ranges namely – DermaxClinicare, KO Dermaceutical, KO Series, and eKo.
The DermaxClinicare series is known for its effectiveness in preventing new acne formation. Products in this series are meticulously blended with a natural botanical extracts under strict quality control. It removes impurities; refines open pores; soothes and heals the skin for an acne-free face.
This series comprises a broad range of products, even for dry and sensitive skin. Products from the DermaxClinicare series may be used together with products from other Dr.Ko Skincare series depending on your needs.
The KO Dermaceutical series speeds up recovery; protects the skin from sun exposures; combats dullness, pigmentation, dehydration whilst reversing the signs of aging. The serums, cleansers, toners, moisturizers and sunscreens complement the needs of most skin types, and is also ideal for post-treatment care. Like Dermax and the KO series, products from the KO Dermaceutical range can be used together with products from other series, depending on your skin condition.
The KO series offers a gentle solution to reduce blemishes, which is great news for those who have sensitive or acne-prone skin as most blemish fighting products can irritate sensitive skin.
The eKo series is infused with amaranthuscaudatus — one of the best sources of vegetable protein known for its antioxidant and skin revitalization properties.
The range of products that were prescribed to me :
I was prescribed a mixture of the DermaxClinicare, KO Dermaceutical and KO Series. From masks to basic neccesities like toners. face wash, moisturizers (day and night) and eyecream, sunblock and etc.
Dermax Bio Perform Cleanser 1
I love this cleanser as it's very suitable for my skin! I have combination skin but it's also suitable for people with normal skin. All I have to do is wet my face and neck, pump adequate amount of cleanser on palm and massage in circular motions. After that, just rinse with my face with water thoroughly. I use this in the morning and at night.
KO Dermaceutical Perfect Radiance Toner 21
This is an alcohol free toner formulated with plant extracts to sooth the skin while inhibiting melanin production! The long-terms usage will transforms dull, tired skin into a brighter and luminous complexion and I have been seeing the differences already! It gives my skin an instant freshness at any time of the day, however I've only been using it twice a day due to my busy schedule.
After cleansing all I have to do is close my eyes and spray it on my face. Alternatively, you can opt to spray on cotton pad before applying on face. You can even spray on makeup to set or refresh it! This toner is free from, alcohol, colorant and also preservatives.
It contains cactus pear extract, trehalose, centifolia rose extract, witch hazel extract, cucumber extract, orange flower water, raspberry fruit water, lavender essential oil which is very soothing!
Ko Dermacare Aqua Hydrating Moisturizer I
An invigorating water-based moisturizer that drenches your skin in a veil of tranquility. Just what I need as it calms my skin from irritation of pollutants and it replenishes the moisture level at once too. It is great for acne-prone and oily skin, which I've definitely struggled with! All I have to do is, after cleansing and toning, just apply a pea sized amount all over my face and I'm done to go!
